The Selling Synopsis

A multi-published author facilitates this interactive workshop which focuses entirely on synopses for books that have sold. After reviewing the key components of what should be included in a synopsis and the different ways synopses can be structured, participants look for these key components in the synopses they've been given utilizing Cindy's Selling Synopsis Score Sheet.

Cindy Kirk sold her first book in 1999 as a result of a contest win which garnered a critique of the entire manuscript. Patience Bloom, now Senior Editor for Romantic Suspense at Harlequin, not only critiqued the manuscript, she bought it! And she’s still Cindy’s editor today. An author of twenty-five books for Harlequin, Cindy has also written two contemporary romances for Avon. Cindy has been a Booksellers’ Best Award Winner, a finalist for the National Readers’ Choice Awards, and a Waldenbooks/Borders best seller. Her fifth and sixth books in the Rx for Love mini-series for Harlequin Special Edition are 2012 releases.
